    Re: 1977 J10 Honcho "Magnum"

    This sounds a lot like EMI. Maybe the throttle body assembly and air-cleaner formed a resonant circuit excited by RF from the ignition system. Injectors can be pretty noisy too. I kinda wonder if...
  2. Re: Recirculation Door Actuator. 2012 JK Wrangler

    Sounds electrically actuated... like there is a little motor in there with a stripped plastic gear. Do you have a shop manual with wiring diagrams? If so maybe trace the circuit and cut a wire in a...

    Re: AX15 trouble/questions

    Been doing some more reading. Maybe this is all common knowledge for some, but I found it interesting and I hope others will too.

    A good summary on different lubrication scenarios....

    Re: AX15 trouble/questions

    I am under the impression that the thing to look out for with yellow metal in transmissions is using a lubricant containing sulfur compounds. Its the sulfur that is not compatible with yellow metals...

    Re: I (also) bought a TJ

    If its like my 1999 then the ECU may make the oil pressure gauge indicate zero to bring your attention to it even though the code indicates that a reading is too high. I once had my alternator...

    Re: I (also) bought a TJ

    The gauge diagnostic tests the function of the gauge in the instrument cluster. There could still be a fault with the pressure sensor or the wiring.

    I've removed a blind needle bearing in my NP 271 case by picking out the rollers, grinding a relief in the lip of the outer shell and then folding it in on itself with a pair of vice grips. It...

    Re: AX15 trouble/questions

    I have no idea what was in my AX-15 when I bought it, but it did have a hard time with 1-2 shifts until I drove it a few miles and it warmed up. I tried 10w-30 after Paul mentioned it and it does...

    Cool.

    Did his antenna element have corona balls on both ends when he first put it in the vice at 5:38?

    Edit... this was intended for the video Tom posted about tuning... somehow through the...

    I'd expect in that case that the driveshaft would rotate with a very consistent angular velocity. The central yoke of the double cardan would have a sinusoidal variation in angular velocity, but...

    Definitely. You can see the two rear drive shafts in one of the pictures. Looks like the one for the rear-most axle is a two piece, with a carrier bearing to route it over the other (middle?) axle....
